What an awesome post. Loved it. I was in year 12 at high school. Unlike you I didn't study at all really. It was all about the social side of things. I worked part time as a checkout chick and didn't play any sports. While I was 17 I finished school. Got my first full time job. Got my first car. Got my license. Planned on a holiday on a cruise ship (big time then) but ended up falling pregnant to a boy I was friends with all throughout high school and by the time I turned 18 I already had my first son. WOW.
